RE: Upgrade to Lenny (+Lenny-test).

Thanks Vagrant,
I was hopping you'd pick up my call, spot on as usual.
With the information you provided I easily got past the boot process, yet
some small differences may be of interest:

	Indeed "boot=nfs" is missing at
Naively adding it there make the thin-clients get past this point but there
are display problems.

I've got neither,
I have /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/ltsp/update-kernels.conf (added boot=nfs to
I haven't got /opt/ltsp/i386 /usr/lib/ltsp/update-kernels (no such file or
But I have  /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ltsp/update-kernels (Shell script)
So I tried:
	chroot /opt/ltsp/i386
Still didn't pull the trick.
I created /etc/ltsp/ltsp-update-kernels.conf then ran:
That had put the boot=nfs option in
Now a thin-client boots all the way to LDM login screen missing artwork,
login successful to desktop,
Shell login fails with message "Login incorrect", this has happened also
with Etch.

What do you make of these differences in files locations?
I have ltsp-server 5.1.10-2 installed.

Other questions, not exclusively for Vagrant:
What need be done to solve the bug in installation system or is it in the
ltsp-server package?
What are the reasons NBD is used elsewhere but not in Debian?
